Nigel Hadgkiss APM

I pay tribute to Nigel Hadgkiss APM following a long career of public service including his recent service as the Australian Building and Construction Commissioner.

Mr Hadgkiss has served in senior roles, including as an Assistant Commissioner of the AFP, as the Director of the NSW DPP and served on several Royal Commissions.

“Nigel Hadgkiss is an eminent Australian who has dedicated his life to public service,” Senator Abetz said.

“Most recently, he has been a strong and effective regulator in seeking to bring back  the rule of law to the building and construction sector in the face of a political protection run for the CFMEU by Labor and others.”

“I wish Mr Hadgkiss and his family well for the future,” Senator Abetz concluded.
